A team of the Eti-Osa Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) has helped a homeless mother deliver a newborn baby under Ajah bridge.
In a post shared on Facebook, it was gathered that the 35 year-old mother identified as Blessing Emmanuel from Cross River state had no home or family in Lagos State.
It was learnt that she was fond of roaming around Ajah bridge.
After Blessing fell into labor, the LASEMA’s ‘Operation Storm’ Response Team was the only available medical option.
The team helped a Blessing deliver a baby boy safely before evacuating them to the Island Maternity Hospital for continued medical attention.

… Amidst Several Other Operations Under Ajah Bridge in Eti-Osa
While LASEMA Response Team on Saturday 19th September, 2020 was evacuating carcas of burnt tanker, 40ft containerized truck loaded with generator sets and the burnt lowbed conveying an excavator from the ‘Tanker on Fire’ incident of Friday 18th September, the Agency was also blanketing another fallen oil Tanker yesterday morning to avoid another fire, a few metres from the Friday night incident scene at Anthony inward Gbagada.
Amidst all of these operations, LASEMA’s ‘Operation Storm’ Response Team stationed at Eti-Osa, under Ajah bridge as part of the proactive measures of the Agency to mitigate against harzards that may trail gridlock following closure of Third Mainland Bridge, has taken delivery of a life baby boy.
35 year-old indigene of Cross Rivers State, Ms. Blessing Emmanuel, a semi-destitute, with no home, nor family in Lagos, and fond of roaming around under the Ajah bridge, fell in labour and LASEMA’s ‘Operation Storm’ Response Team was the only available medical option.
As a complete medical team with an Ambulance at its disposal, presence of LASEMA’s ‘Operation Storm’ Response Team under the Ajah bridge in Eti-osa was timely and made delivery of Ms. Blessing of a life and healthy baby boy safe and easy.
In line with its responsibility of saving lives, after successfully completing the task of delivering Ms. Blessing of the life, male neonate under the Bridge in record time, mother and child were taken to the Island Maternity Hospital in stable condition, for continued, expert medical care.
